Just before the full-scale invasion of the Russian Federation into the territory of Ukraine on February 24, 2022, the representatives of CF Right to Protection, together with technical experts, within the framework of the Prepare Prevent Protect (3P) Consortium (ACTED, IMPACT Initiatives, R2P, the Danish, and Ukrainian Red Cross Societies) have prepared the analytical report on the impact of dangerous environmental and technogenic factors on the health of the population of Eastern Ukraine.
The report analyzes the problems of the health care system in the Ukrainian-controlled territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions (as of February 24, 2022), which were caused or exacerbated by the military conflict in Eastern Ukraine, as well as environmental and technogenic hazards in these areas. The report contains respective recommendations for public authorities and authorized structures to reduce the mentioned risks to the health of residents of Donetsk and Luhansk regions, which were relevant at the time of the invasion of the aggressor country in February 2022.
The report contains important and detailed information addressed to the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine, Ministry of Health of Ukraine, Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources of Ukraine, Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine, the State Emergency Service of Ukraine, regional state administrations, etc.
Considering the active hostilities that have taken place in Ukraine since the beginning of the full-scale invasion of Russia, and one of the epicenters of which have become the Donetsk and Luhansk regions, where the objects bearing risks of environmental and technogenic character are concentrated, the research itself, as well as conclusions and forecasts there acquire a new meaning.
